A loan of $3,750 helped a member to buy more beers and pigs for her business expansion.

Mukisa Women's Group, Lugazi's story

With hand raised in the group photo is N. Teddy, a 48-year-old married mother of eight kids who also takes care of two orphans.

Teddy operates a bar in Namataba, Lugazi, infamously known for its sale of that highly favored delicacy. Though frowned upon as an unorthodox means of earning a living by some sections of society, it is a roaring business that brings in good profits - that’s if you are taking the example of Teddy.

Teddy also sells pork to her customers which goes hand-in-hand with the beers they buy. She has been running this business for the last eight years and she cites the scarcity of pigs as a major inconvenience for her business. On a weekly basis, she makes 30,000 shillings and 50,000 shillings respectively from her businesses.

The reputation of Teddy’s business has also largely been enhanced by her hygienic operating environment. With this loan she wants to purchase more stock for her growing business.

In this group: Teddy, Erinah, Emmanuel, Robinah, Ismail, Samuel, Gertrude, Aminah, Gertrude, Christine, Bryan, Livingstone*, Zayida*, Allen, Resty, Rachael
